Subject [users@httpd] apache balancermember not listening to max connections
Date Sat, 14 Mar 2009 08:52:02 GMT
Currently I am using a apache 2.2.6 instance with a balancer configuration:

<Proxy balancer://patmos>
   BalancerMember ajp:// route=tomcat01 max=100 smax=80
   BalancerMember ajp:// route=tomcat02 max=100 smax=80
ProxyPass / balancer://patmos/ stickysession=JSESSIONID|jsessionid 

The backend servers has more than 512 established ajp connections each. 
That's more than the max=100 what is configured in the Apache 

512 is what I configured as maxThreads in my Tomcat connector.
Because 512 is the max for a tomcat instance, Apache got connection 
errors and disables that BalanceMember and the website is offline.

So, it seems to me Apache is not listening to the smax and max params on 
the BalancerMember.

Reading my error log:
[error] (145)Connection timed out: proxy: AJP: attempt to connect to ( failed
[error] ap_proxy_connect_backend disabling worker for (
[error] proxy: BALANCER: (balancer://patmos). All workers are in error state

So, any ideas what going wrong here?
